O Jnne I the month of merry song, M**"*
Of shadow brief, of sunshine long
All things on earth love yon the best
The bird who carols near bis nest
The wind that wakes and, singing, blows
The spicy perfume of the rose:

And even all the stars above
All night are happier for love,
As if the mellow notes of mirth

The firct plant lice that appear in
spring are hatched from eggs laid the
previous autumn, and are exclusively
females. Fr om these the species is
propagated throughout the season by
What is known as asexual generation,
tbn young being born alive through
many successive generations, and with
out any pairing of the sexes. Th
males and perfect femalesi. e., those
capable of depositing fertile eggs, only
appear late in the season. I is said
that the male form of the cabbage aphis
ihas not yet been discovered. Until
quite recently the eggs of the hop aphis
had not been found, but it is now
thought that they are deposited on the
terminal twigs of plum Uees, and sev
eral other species are believed to deposit
their eggs, on plants entirely distinct

Heaves of pear and some other trees in
summer, and which is known as "honey
dew," is largely, if not entirely a se
cretion of the aphis Ants are fond of
this secretion, and hence are always
found on plants infested with plant lice.
Indeed, the latter are treated by the ants
touch as if they had been reduced to a
state of domestication. It is known
that the ants frequently transport the
lice from place to place, that they know
how to cause them to yield their sweet
teecretion at will, and they are also
(thought to protect them from their in
sect enemies. They are called "ants'
Last year the damage by aphis to

Is by no means the only locality that
suffered, nor is the past the only season
5n which cultivated plants have been
injured by them. It is estimated that
the injury to the hop crop of England
in 1882, from the aphis, amounted to
$8,000,000. The dieaded phylloxera of
Europe, that has threatened to annihi
late grape-growing in many localities,
belongs to the family of plant lice, and
fchere are many other injurious species.
Perhaps no insect with which we
thave to contend is so difficult to bat
Itle successfully in the open air. With
nursery trees and herbaceous plants,
'kerosene emulsions or solutions of
twhale-oil soap prove paitially satis
factory. Bu the insects are so small
and so numerous, that it is practically
(impossible to reach them all, and owing
to their extiemely rapid multiplication,
the few that escape soon envelope the
the plants anew. I the case of large
trees, their destruction becomes much
more difficult. On the whole, the
mastery of the aphis in the open air
must be regarded as one of the unsol
ved problems in hoihculture.
THE SHIPPING CRATE.
Those who gr ow produce for market
do not need to be told of the importance
of neat and proper packing to secure
ready sales and best prices. The farm
er sometimes has a crop, such as an
unexpected crop of early apples, that
'he would gladly turn into money, but
the is not provided with baskets for
for packing his fruit, and if sent in bar
rels the fruit would arrive in bad order
,and bring low prices. such the
liushel crate comes as a ready resource.
A bushel crate is easily made, and forms
a neat and handy package for nearly all
Jkinds of pioduce. ma ke a bushel
crate there are required three pieces,
each eight by fourteen inches, for the
end and center piece the strips or laths
tfor the sides are two feet long. Th
width of these depends upon the article
to be packed. Sixteen strips are com
monly used, with spaces between for
ventilation. Of ter the corners of the
end and middle pieces are cut off this
makes the crate octagonal in shape,
which is an advantage, as it allows of
better ventilation when the orates are
stacked together. I building the crates
the two strips at the top are nailedtlown,
to allow an opening through which to
fill it. I packing in crates, as in bar
rels, they are to be shaken to settle the
contents, which should project slightly
at the top to require some pressure to
bring down the last slats, which serve
as a cover, into place. Vegetables and
fruits should always be packed with
pressure, otherwise they become bruis
and injured generally in transit.
BAD ODOBS IN MILK.'
When cows first get on full feed of
grass at this season they aie apt to
scour badly. If shut up at night and
milked in close stables night and
morning their milk will absorb the
odors from their manure and become
'extremely offensive. If cooled as
soon as possible and exposed to the air
the odors will disappear without being
noticed. But milk that has to be
carried to market or factories by milk
men is usually placed at once in close
cans. When these are opened some
hours later a strongly offensive odor
will pretty surely come from them. Not
long ago I heard of a daiiyman who
securod a herd of Holstein cows on
account of theiryield. In this he was
not disappointed, but the milk was
extromely offensive so that his custo
mer* would not take it. He would
have changed his valuable herd for
much poorer cows if some one had not
pointed out the cause of his trouble.
It is beat not to givegreen laxative food
unaccompanied by other and more
substantial diet, and especially in Sum
mer cows should not be milked in close
stables wherever it can be avoided.
Itispossible, and even probable, that
the frequent complaints that ensilage
in Winter makes thes milk taste bad
due to this cause!
There are conditions of the ground
which ma ke the double diamond better
for the early cultivation of corn than
either the harrow or the cultivators.
When the Sprbngiswhat we term "back-
ward,'* the^weather being distinguished
by rains, accompanied by low tempera
ture the^ground becomes cold and wet
then the soU should be thrownaway from
the corn, leaving ridges to dry qulckjy
and warm up in the sun. The plows
may be run very close to the corn I set
them just six inches apart. A soon as
the ridges are dry, especially if the
weather promises to be less rainy, the
furrows should be closed and the ridges
cut dawn with the cultivators or harrow,
if the size of the corn will permit.
I am believer in level, rather shallow
culture for corn, have been converted
from the ridge theory by several
years of experimenting. I am as decid
edly of opinion that often ridge culture
is the better, as I have pointed out. Our
practices must vary with conditions.
This applies with special force to the
cultivation of corn, for during its season
the weather is so changeable that the
conditions are not often the same six da
in sucession. What is proper cultivation
one day may be wrong the next. When
a man insists that either level culture
or ridged culture is right uuder all con
ditions you may be sure that his preju
dices reduce his corn crop.

A Peer's Daughter marries a Miner.
Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle: A very

North Carolina, last autumn to spend
some time with her uncle and sister.
The husband of the sister is one of the
owners of a gold mine. The ladies
were said to bo the daughters of an
English Earl. Th younger sister or
Lady Aymer, as she was called,
became well known in that section.
One of her pleasmes was to visit the
mine, where a large force of men were
employed. Among these miners was
Harry Bell, a native of North Carolina
Lady Aymer and Hany Bell soon had
stolen interviews. A week ago Lady
Aymer's sister missed her. Bell, too,
was missing. I twenty-four hours
came the news that a marriage had
taken place between the alleged Peer's
daughter and the American miner.
Then came Mr. and Mrs. Bell. They
had gone over into Bowan Couty,
which adjoines Montgomery, and were
married by a rustic preacher.
